As the subject line suggests, this update is going to be about something olfactory. However, before we get into that story, let's talk about the group classes this week. The dances we are doing are:
Saturday night was good too. Disco always is. Check out the photos in the Facebook group. That's where we share the more raw and behind the scenes kind of stuff. It was a popular event too - check out the photo below - so we got in a little less partner dance than desired, but we certainly still danced.
And we have another social event this weekend. Sundays are back at the venue like we used to have! See the details here - https://www.facebook.com/functionseventsepsc/posts/pfbid012nV6yxZGaEXzNcb9Tx5iGELHsbNyr4iwxRXbguYyVhSxZQfiBvfJGBXjkWei9fKl - and note the excellent entry price! This has always been a great way to see the weekend out. So let me know if you are coming - we will be on a table together. The band does a range of classic songs so there will be a few styles you can dance.
Reminder on cancellation policy
Please remember that our policy is 48 hours notice to cancel a class. This is so our instructors are not left with vacant slots and wasting their time. We do understand emergencies happen, but in other instances, please give us as much warning as possible.
A story about stinking
Last week a student left a scarf at group class. I noticed this afterward during a private lesson with Bertha*.
I picked it up and smelled it to see if I could work out who's it was. "That's Hildegard's" I said victoriously (proud of my olfactory senses) and I went to the default lost property bin (the red suitcase) to place it there.
Bertha laughed at my statement and asked how I knew. I noted that when you dance with someone enough you pick up on their scent. Thus, I can pick many of the women in group by scent. I asked if she could not do that with the men.
Her reply was "Only if they stink!"
The moral of the story? There's a few men in group class who need to put more effort into their scent.
The fact is I did not really smell Hildegard's scent - it was her perfume I could smell.
So if you are a man then:
Hopefully that was a sufficiently humorous, but still informative enough, end to this week's update.
See you on the dance floor
